De quelques aspects du théâtre jeunesse contemporain

Abstract : The aim of this article is to explore contemporary youth theater by focusing more particularly on some characteristics of the characters in this repertoire. Thematically, most of these plays involve characters who represent children or adolescents confronted with the world of adults or other children and, more generally, with the vicissitudes that affect human existence. In this sense, we can say that they constitute a kind of "training" theater. The fact remains that they avoid the trap of didacticism by resorting to a mode of kaleidoscopic composition and a fragmentary organization which derogates from the classical rules. Another advantage of these plays is that most benefit from being accompanied by staging work to be carried out with the students.
